Chvrches – Every Open Eye


Chvrches - Every Open Eye (Virgin Emi) 2015


Every Open Eye is the second album by the synthpop Glasgow trio Chvrches. They kind of surprised everyone with their first album, The Bones of What You Believe. Knowing that the new album was self-produced by the band and that they rejected the possibility of co-writing with other people, Every Open Eye is a strong and bold statement of the group that’s able to do their own thing, despite the great praise they had with their debut album. Unfortunaly this new one lacks diversity and it’s too similar to the previous one. Nevertheless, the album sounds much cleaner, much more confident and emotionally complex. Lauren Mayberry shows to be more confident and strong on her voice and performance, but still shows her vulnerability throughout her lyrics, which is a great thing because it’s still showing her honesty and frontality as a musician and as an individual.
